What Is Hospice?

Amara will assign a team to care for the family. This team will develop a care plan and review this plan with  the doctor a minimum of  every 2 weeks. Adjustments can be made any time needed.

Hospice Is:

The clinical team consists of RN nurses, LVN nurses, and CNA’s that are supervised by a medical Director (MD).  These professionals will visit on a frequency determined by each families need.

Medical care for people with an anticipated life expectancy of 6 months or less, when cure isn’t an option, and the focus shifts to symptom management and quality of life.
An interdisciplinary team of professionals trained to address physical, psychosocial, and spiritual needs of the person; the team also supports family members and other intimate unpaid caregivers.
Specialty care that is person-centered, stressing coordination of care, clarification of goals of care, and communication.
A Medicare benefit; to which all Medicare enrollees have a right. Under Medicare, there is no out of pocket expense or copay for hospice services. Hospice care also is covered by most private health insurance at varying levels, and in almost every state, by Medicaid. Read more about paying for hospice.
Provided primarily where a person lives, whether that is a private residence, nursing home, or community living arrangement, allowing the patient to be with important objects, memories, and family.
Care that includes periodic visits to the patient and family caregivers by hospice team members. Hospice providers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to respond if patient or caregiver concerns arise.
The only medical care that includes bereavement care, which is available during the illness and for more than a year after the death for the family/intimate network.
